The 21st Century Learning Conference is an annual event in Hong Kong where teachers, staff, and school leaders come together to learn, share and discuss current & emerging topics in education with thought leaders, technology, and learning experts, and their peers. With over 650 attendees from 33 countries, it is the event of choice for a diverse international audience. The event blends together inspirational keynotes, practitioner-led workshop sessions, and fun networking opportunities.
Friday, March 8 • 2:30pm - 3:00pm

Each year in spring, research institutes and universities around the world partner with high school students and teachers in a programme to experience life at the forefront of basic nuclear physics research. The International Masterclasses hands-on Particle Physics (IMChoPP) gives students the opportunity to be particle physicists by analyzing real data from CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC).  
While a Higgs boson has already been discovered by scientists at the LHC in 2012, the data holds many other interesting secrets waiting to be found. In the IMChoPP, high-school students work with real data collected by the experiments at the LHC. The programme provides a unique opportunity for students to work side-by-side with scientists and get a taste of how modern research in physics works.
The four ongoing experiments - ALICE, ATLAS, CMS, and LHCb - have made data available for educational use for the IMChoPP. Students examine the products of collisions between elementary particles that travel through the 27 kilometers accelerator underground at close to the speed of light.
Just as in many real collaborations in particle physics, students experience this international aspect when they present their findings at the end of their research, in a video linkup with CERN, Fermilab and student groups in other participating countries.
The International Masterclasses are coordinated by TU Dresden, Germany and QuarkNet, USA and managed by an international steering group in close cooperation with IPPOG (International Particle Physics Outreach Group).

A wide range of study tasks is available. Join the workshop/presentation to learn more about how your school could join the IMChoPP programme.
